This is a standard salad dressing (also used on chicken, etc.) in southern France. Our formula is not quite "authentic" (see notes), but more suited to Southern California tastes.

  1. Crush Garlic Cloves moderately with the side of your prep knife.
  2. Strip leaves and tips of Savory from the hard stems. with Basil and chop fine.
  3. Mix All Items together well. Put in a jar so you can shake it up before use.
NOTES:
  1. Wine Vinegar   The pattern recipe calls for the 4 to 1 ratio of Oil to Vinegar that is standard in France. Here in Southern California that ratio is considered way too oily - a 2 to 1 ratio is the most oil we can tolerate, so that's what I've called for.
  2. Summer Savory:   This is easily available to me, but if you can't get it in your city, feel free to use Marjoram, or even Oregano.
  3. U.S. measure: t=teaspoon, T=Tablespoon, c=cup, qt=quart, oz=ounce, #=pound, cl=clove in=inch, ar=as required tt=to taste
